Hi all, I'm new to the forum (and to typography for that matter). I have just made my first font. Was wondering if anyone could give me a thought or two on things that could be improved about the font.
It was meant to be a font that looks good as body copy and headlines.
Would you call this a sans serif font if some letters like the i and j has serif?
Any constructive criticism about the font would be much appreciated.
So if you really want this to work for body copy, where the text has a lot to say, the glyphs need to be more ordinary and more consistent - consistent both within glyphs (top terminal of c is flared, bottom terminal is circular - why?), between glyphs ("u" and "v" terminals completely different), and with the reader's expectations of reading text in similar styles ("b" and "q" break those expectations).
I don't mean "make a boring font". What I mean is that each inconsistency needs to earn its place.
Thank you for the response Richard, would you care to explain what full-blown strokes mean?
